Here is a showy and confident cup and saucer probably made by the Ridgway factory (Shelton, Stoke on Trent), since the way the pattern is numbered fits their system. It is bone china, with a dark cobalt blue ground highlighted by gilded dots and leaves, and a white triangular reserve with gilding and flowers. The rims are shaped and the saucer has molded ribs that can be felt only on the inside. The showy handle of the cup invites one to pick it up. The cup is perfect in every way; the saucer has some gilding wear to the decoration in the well. The saucer is five and three-quarters inches across. No chips or cracks.
